On Your Mark

On your mark, get set, go. Boom the gun shot

I run up fast to catch up to the lead

Running in the new shoes that I have bought

I have to come in the top four; it's a need


I hear my friends and family all around

As I sprint past fourth, nothing slows me down

Faster and faster,my feet hit the ground

I hope I will be number one in town


I blow past the people in front of me

I feel all their eyes, my heart starts to race

I have to think smart; I know that's key

Despite all the work, I pick up the pace


As I see the finish line coming near

I placed in the lead, I'm glad it ends here
